24hrs in Stockholm, Sweden


On my way home from Paris I stopped over for another quick-trip, this time to Stockholm. 

I enjoyed Stockholm a lot, the weather wasn't so great, but I loved my hotel, was able to do a bus tour around the city, and had a great dinner. 


I found that Stockholm was not as touristy as a city as I had expected, maybe it's the time of year?  I'm not sure.  But, that didn't stop me from doing a nice bus-tour and, even though it was raining, enjoying what the city had to offer!

I stayed in the Elite Hotel Adlon, right across the street from the train station, it was perfect!  I loved that the airport had a high-speed train right to the city, Arlanda Express, it runs about every 15 minutes, has free wi-fi, and boasts its use of green-energy, which is something I think is really great!

I ate dinner down the street from my hotel at Stockholm Fisk.  I started with a Nicoise salad, the tuna was ahhhhmazingggggg.  

For my entree I had traditional Swedish meatballs because...I had to, right?!  They were the best Swedish meatballs I have ever eaten, I couldn't believe it.  They were just...insane, I want them right now.  

For dessert I had what's called a Swedish Fika which is just a small assortment of cookies & pastries. 


And of course, Pink Bear was enjoying his time in Stockholm as well...
